Re: Dog Friendly Hills

Most hills are fairly dog friendly, you just have to make sure you yourself are aware of the risks and dangers with dogs on the hills. I have two that I take along regularly and they've done pretty much all the hills that I have - not a huge number but a good few. Get the dog on a lead when there ar...

Re: Hill Rage - A cautionary tale

The guy has completely over reacted, he's the wanker. I often leave my bag if i know i'm coming back the same route, sometimes I hide it sometimes I dump it if the hill is empty. If i was contemplating suicide I wouldn't climb a **** hill with a rucksac. i would jump out of a very high building or ...

Re: Deer stalking

Thanks folks, some good advice.

Seems to be based on mutual respect and manners so I don't see any issue from my perspective. Totally agree that the estates are good to walkers so we need to consider their income streams regardless of whether we agree with how it's done or not.

Deer stalking

Hi all, I only really started getting out and about in the hills this spring so have never encountered the issue of deer stalking on my wanders. I've seen notices up advising to stay on certain routes during stalking season but was wondering if there are any laws / rules / etiquette that we need to ...

Beinn A'Ghlo - finally some views

Got up with the alarm at 0530 having decided last night that Ben Vorlich / Stuc a'Chroin were the targets for the day; weather forecast was good to excellent pretty much across Scotland and when I saw what a beautiful morning it was decided I wanted something a bit more ambitious to take advantage o...

That's them on Mount Keen a few months back.

Also well done on your first Munro and best of luck with the others you'll no doubt end up doing once the bug bites fully.

Re: Hill Rage - A cautionary tale

Great story and some great responses. All I can say is that I'd love this to happen to me, I would burst out laughing in their faces before falling over and rolling around for a minute or two then turning it round on them and accusing them of theft of the envelope full of £50 notes is that was in my...

It's brightening up - no seriously it is.

I was looking for something not too stressful for this weekend so opted for the Geal Charn – A’Mharconaich walk at Drumochter. Weather was forecast as generally decent for the area with a slight risk of showers so I dutifully set the alarm for 0530 and got on my way at 0620. Temperature was 16 degre...

Re: Ben Lawers - 4 munros circuit

Good report Yesper and it sounds like a great day out. I did Beinn Ghlass and Ben Lawers in exactly the same conditions earlier in the year and intend doing them another time to make up for it so will probably do the same route you just did. Never apologise for writing any report in English when it'...

Re: Will anyone make it to the top of Fuar Tholl?

Sounds a cracker of a day out, great to see people from all over the world getting their first experiences of our great country and it's incredible scenery. Some absolutely excellent photography in there by the way. Also my son's name is Darran, my wife says I spelled it wrong, and that's he first t...

Morning walk in Sidlaws

I've done this walk dozens of times since I was a kid (over 45 years ago was the first time :shock: ) and probably for that reason I kind of take it for granted. Fact is though that it's great wee walk, not too strenuous and affording some pretty cracking views from the tops of Auchterhouse, Bullude...

Re: Monega disaster

After six days and five nights I got my dog Buster back, skinny and a bit quiet but back and still surprisingly healthy. The gamekeepers were brilliant during this time watching for him and chasing any signs.

Please get GPS trackers for your dogs, Buster never runs off bit he did that day.

Re: Cairnwell on a hot May Day

Hercy burd? You must be ex military. I got a cracking view of a Herc belting down Glen Isla on Saturday 27th May - must be an exercise on. I was well above it heading for Glas Maol after spending over an hour on top of Monega Hill but my camera was firmly lodged in my backpack. Opportunity missed. ...
